Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! We had a super fun-filled weekend with the boys, including their first egg hunt. Lots of fun, plus Trevor deciding that his crib is now unfit for sleeping meant that there was no time to play along with the Mojo Monday sketch until last night.
I was really craving coffee, even though I started the card at 10:30 pm, so I decided to feed my craving with stamps and pull out Better With You. I flipped the sketch to accommodate the stamps I wanted to use, then started with the coffee stain in crumb cake and the better with you sentiment over that in black. Next I pulled out some chevron paper from the Snap Color Vibe pad to paper piece the large mug. The paper was white and I'd already chosen cream for my base color, so I sponged the chevron paper with crumb cake to make it fit right in. The banners are hand cut from the same paper and matted with early espresso. I added some background random stamping with the coffee stain stamp on the crumb cake top layer and around the mug. A Flourished Trim die cut was my chosen border and I finished off with liquid pearl accents and a button.
This also fits the current Chevron Chic challenge going on at Verve. Hope you can play along!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful week!
